What is The Panhandle Gives?

The Panhandle Gives is an annual event hosted and coordinated by the Amarillo Area Foundation. The event begins on the Monday before Thanksgiving and ends on the global day of giving known as Giving Tuesday. Any nonprofit eligible to receive a grant from AAF qualifies to register for participation.

In order to bolster support of participating organizations, AAF established the “Amplification Fund” made up of money given from foundations, corporate sponsors, and individual donors. One hundred percent of all donations raised by the organizations are kept by that organization. In addition, each participating organization that raised at least $250 during the campaign, receives a percentage match of the total amount of the amplification fund.

The Panhandle Gives continues to be a focused effort of the Amarillo Area Foundation to support, empower, and encourage collaboration among nonprofits across the twenty-six counties of the Texas Panhandle. In 2019, total amount raised was $1,796,513, enabling the growing number of participating nonprofits to serve their communities with innovative programs and services. Our goal for 2020, is $2,000,000!
